You have legal rights. We can help.


Debt collectors don’t always respect the law when they want your money. They will call you at work, reveal information about the debt to your family or co-workers, or yell at you over the phone. None of it is legal, so read on to learn more about your rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, dictates what a collection agency can and cannot do when communicating with you about a debt. Below are some examples of collection behaviors that remain illegal.

● Using profane or obscene language
● Contacting you directly even after you’ve hired an attorney
● Leaving voice messages that do not identify the collector and the reason for their call
● Misleading you on your dispute rights
● Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
● Reporting inaccurate information to the credit bureaus
